Intro: Man's Picnic Basket
My son and I decided to make the ultimate Man's Picnic Basket. We took the basic components for a picnic; Picnic Basket, Ziploc containers, Picnic Blanket, and a little something extra... A custom made 2.1 HiFi stereo sound system for the music device.
Step 1: Parts
Picnic Basket and Blanket
Small Amplifier (2.1 HiFi Stereo)
Wire and Soldering tools
Step 2: Mounting Speakers
Lay out the speakers on the lids of the containers.
Mark your mounting holes and I used a drain plate to make the holes for the sound ports. I used my drill to make them.
Step 3: Amplifier Placement
I mounted the amp on top of the base speaker to protect it.
Made all the wire connections then connected the power supply and music device
Step 4: Louisiana Gumbo
I made some Louisiana Gumbo and enjoyed my picnic with incredible sound. The Ziploc containers really improve the sound quality.
Step 5: New Battery Install
I purchased a smaller and thinner battery so all items now fit inside. I also repurposed a 12v 2amp wall adapter to have other power source and charger.
